Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Knocked around by Cardinals
Montgomery (3-4) was the pitcher of record in the Cubs' 5-2 loss to the Cardinals on Friday after yielding five runs on 12 hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out three in the 93-pitch outing.
Montgomery wasn't fooling anyone in this contest, with the 12 hits he surrendered representing a career-high total. The poor start sent his ERA from 3.73 to 4.03 and moved his WHIP to 1.34. The timing of Montgomery's blowup couldn't be any worse, as the Cubs' recent acquisition of Cole Hamels will result in the team dropping one of its current starters from the five-man rotation. Montgomery or Tyler Chatwood are the most likely candidates to transition to the bullpen next week when Hamels is expected to make his team debut.
